Laura Wagner started working for Los Alamos Public Schools in August 2018 coming from St. Michael’s High School in Santa Fe where she was a teacher of AP Literature and Senior English. Originally from a small town outside of Wichita, Kansas, Laura moved to New Mexico after spending several summers camping and hiking in Northern New Mexico. Laura has taught English, French, and Geography at the high school level and for a dual college credit program. Teaching is a second career following a Master’s degree in Urban Planning and several years spent working in the field in both the public and private sectors. Teachers comprise most of Laura’s family of origin and they encouraged her to become one among them. Laura is grateful to have interacted with an array of wonderful young people over the years and considers her experiences working with students to be the most meaningful of her life.
